In emergency please break the glass

This is a commissioned car that I've made this morning. The request was for for a birthday card for a son-in-law who likes a beer. I wanted to make a box with a 'glass' front with a picture of a beer inside with the instructions 'In emergency please break the glass'. I used Docrafts nesting dies to make the frame which is lined with acetate for the 'glass', also die cutting the layers inside the frame. The frame with acetate was lifted with 3D foam. The instructions were made with tape with my dymo letratag. I added a matching paper inside for the insert and, as the recipient is very musical and plays guitar, I put one on the back. The card blank itself is a folded A4 from Kanban.
